Toronto is #4 On Tech Talent List, Adds 66,900 Jobs In 5 Years

Real Estate firm CBRE ranked 50 cities in North America on their ability to attract tech talent to those cities. CBRE used 13 criterias to rank cities such as tech-talent supply, cost of living, educational degrees and real estate prices.

Toronto ranked #4 on the list, and #1 in Canada for the best city where technology talent wants to come and work.

Toronto did move down from #3 to #4 in this ranking as Washington DC moved 2 spots up to #2 right after San Francisco which is still holding #1 spot.

Seattle ranked #3 and New York City ranked #5 after Toronto.

Some Canadians cities fared well while some others dropped in ranking. Vancouver retained its #12 spot, Ottawa jumped 5 spots to #14, while Montreal dropped 3 spots to #16 and Calgary finally made it to Top 50 List as #34.

Top 25 Cities in North America For Tech Talent

Toronto added an impressive 66,900 jobs or almost 37% more tech jobs over the last 5 years. The second biggest add after San Francisco.

CBRE said that even though Toronto salary raised 11.2% over the last year, it is still much cheaper and more affordable than salaries in US cities.

Top 12 Universities in Canada For Computer Science in 2020

Computer science grads are in great demand in Canada as well as south of the border in the United States of America. Some top universities claim that up to 95% of the grads are hired within a year after completion.

Toronto Is The Best City To Launch Startup In Canada, 8Th In The World

Toronto is once again has been named as one of the best cities in the world to start your tech startup business.

Experts at Movinga, online platform-based moving company, have crunched the numbers and named Toronto as one of the best cities to launch tech startup in the world.

Movinga looked at 75 cities around the world and ranked them based on their “entrepreneurial spirit, business opportunities and economic growth”. They also looked into “looking into startup costs, opportunities for female founders and the typical timeframe for setting up a new business”.

Top three cities for tech startups were San Francisco, London and New York City.

Toronto was the only city in Canada that made the top 10 list.

The main industries for growth in the tech/digital venture category is one of the most interesting datasets in this study. With Artificial Intelligence taking top spot and Blockchain making a noticeable appearance, digital entrepreneurs are clearly leveraging future-facing technologies more than ever.

Top 50 Canadian Tech Companies To Watch Out For in 2018, According to Deloitte

Deloitte, one of the “Big Four” accounting firms and the largest professional services network in the world by revenue and number of professionals, has released its yearly published Top 50 Canadian Tech Companies to Watch For.

This year, all top 3 companies fast growing tech companies come as no surprise hail from Ontario, Yours To Discover. As a matter of fact, the list was dominated by 29 companies / almost 60% from Ontario. British Columbia took second spot with 13 companies / almost 30%, and Quebec only had 5 companies (only 10%). Rest were spread out across Canada – mainly in the Prairies.

Diply, London Ontario, a leading social entertainment publisher that creates captivating content for millennials, took the #1 top spot with mindblowing 92881.1% growth.

The #2 spot was taken by Burlington Ontario Prodigy Games, doing a noble job of teaching over 20 million students, teachers, and parents with their free math game for Grades 1 – 8.

So you do not have to be like this guy

And to round up the Top 3 spot was a company with similar name to #2 – Prodigy Ventures from Toronto Ontario, an innovation company, and an early stage investment opportunity in emerging technologies.

Once you used the math game software from #2 , you can straight apply to #3 😉

 

Anders McKenzie, managing partner at Deloitte Canada, said:

“Fast 50 winners achieve incredible growth. These companies foster the economic prosperity and success of our country. The technology, media and telecommunications sector has achieved significant advances in the last twenty years. This current innovative cohort of companies continues to lead the pack in transforming the way we live and work. They should be incredibly proud of the impact they are making across all industries and how they are shaping the world as we know it today and what it will look like tomorrow.”

3 Canadian Cities among 25 Most High-Tech Cities in the World

The World Economic Forum just released their 25 most high tech cities in the world. Three Canadian cities below made the cut: Montreal was #18, Vancouver #14 and Toronto, of course, is #9.

World Forum has used 10 different criteria to generate their list: number of patents filed per capita, startups, tech venture capitalists, ranking in other innovation datasets, and level of smartphone use.

Top 25 High Tech Cities in The World

25. Washington, DC

The US capital has been rapidly expanding its tech scene over the last decade, growing its overall number of tech-related jobs by 50%.

In addition, more than 1,000 startups call DC home. The proximity to the federal government mixed with the deep pockets of nearby venture-capital firms makes starting a world-changing company an appealing prospect in the city.

24. Barcelona, Spain

The Spanish city cracked the top 25 for the first time since last year’s ranking, in particular for its growing population of industrial designers and prominent smartphone use.

Smartphone infrastructure is so sophisticated, in fact, that electrical boxes strewn around Barcelona contain computers that capture noise levels, traffic patterns, and how many selfies people take.

23. Copenhagen, Denmark

What Copenhagen lacks in startup culture and venture capital, it makes up for with innovative urban planning and a strong contingent of industrial designers — factors that 2thinknow praises as signs the city prioritizes smart manufacturing.

By 2025, the city plans to sever its dependence on fossil fuel, due in large part to harnessed wind energy. Its robust bike culture and fleet of architecture firms allow Copenhagen to be a city that’s not just green, but beautiful.

22. Hong Kong, China

Rather than excel in one particular category, Hong Kong hits just about every box in terms of its advancement.

The city devotes enormous amount of moneytoward research and development and city-wide innovation, boasting some of the fastest Internet speeds in China. Its high-tech exports total $243 billion, or 51% of the total exported goods.

21. Berlin, Germany

Not to be outdone, Germany’s capital city boasts a strong start-up culture and has some of the highest rates of venture capital investment in Europe.

Berlin is also the locus for much of Europe’s automobile industry. It is the only city in the world where all of the major automative brands are represented.

20. Shenzhen, China

Patents are flying out of Shenzhen, a city in southern China that boasts a population of 11 million.

As part of the country’s push toward manufacturing, Shenzhen has grown significantly over the last several years as a hub for factories and robotics. Multiple telecom and electronics giants have found a home base in the city.

19. Bangalore, India

No other city in 2thinknow’s ranking climbed as far compared to 2016’s ranking as Bangalore, which moved from 49th place to 19th.

The change is due to an influx of IT companies and the city’s enormous population of programmers. Half of India is under 25, and many are entering the growing tech space, creating a virtuous circle of growth.

18. Montreal, Canada

If you want to be an industrial designer or programmer, you should consider moving to Montreal. If you want to work in wearable technology (or virtual reality), even better.

Montreal is home to Vrvana, a VR headset manufacturer, and the companies Hexoskin and OMSignal, which both make clothes that measure wearers’ biometric signals. The city also has a fairly strong startup culture.

17. Shanghai, China

The closest Shanghai has to Silicon Valley is the Zhangjiang Hi-Tech Park. It houses more than 100,000 workers split between thousands of tech companies.

Like most of China’s high-tech cities, Shanghai excels in patents and venture capital. That may be because manufacturing has become a top priority in China, and companies are eager to protect (and invest in) their intellectual property.

16. Beijing, China

Though it may lack the startup culture of other high-tech cities, Beijing is renowned for its city-wide use of smartphones and the number of patents filed per capita. It venture capital scene has also grown rapidly over the past several years.

The city climbed 15 spots since the 2016 rankings.

15. Amsterdam, the Netherlands

Amsterdam’s combination of financial technology, energy efficiency, and startup culture make it a powerhouse in Europe, despite being much smaller than its neighbors. (It has only a third of Berlin’s population, for example.)

In April, lawmakers announced they wanted to ban gas and diesel cars by 2025 in favor of electric vehicles — perhaps the city’s most visible sign of its look toward the future.

14. Vancouver, Canada

In 2014, the CBC called Vancouver “Silicon Valley North” in recognition of its strong start-up culture.

There are more than 600 digital media companies that generate more than $2 billion in revenue. Tech-focused universities and low corporate tax rates, meanwhile, make the city attractive for both up-and-coming engineers as well as established executives.

13. Stockholm, Sweden

With missions to go cash-free and oil-freewithin the next five years, Stockholm is fully embracing the digital and environmental revolutions.

The city also has the most billion-dollar startups in Europe and the world’s second-fastest-growing market for venture capital investments. It’s no wonder that programmers are flocking to the Swedish capital.

12. Tokyo, Japan

The largest city in the world doesn’t achieve that feat without impressive levels of infrastructure — transportation in particular. Tokyo’s subway system, for example, is used by 2.3 billion people every year.

Tokyo excels in venture capital investments, and is home to a dizzying number of tech giants, many of which are already preparing for the 2020 Olympic Games.

11. Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas

Just within the last couple years, Dallas has established itself as a startup hub.

In 2thinknow’s analysis, the Texas city climbed from 28th in 2016 to just outside the top 10 because of its rapid growth in the number of venture capitalists and integration of technology into the city landscape.

10. Chicago, Illinois

You might not think of the Midwest as a startup magnet, but Chicago is quickly proving that assumption false. A recent report found Illinois was among the top five in high-tech jobs in the US, with the Windy City making up a big chunk of those spots.

Brookings Institute also finds Chicago is a hotbed for urban planning innovation, driven largely by City Digital, a project designed to solve problems related to energy transfer and transportation.

9. Toronto, Canada

Rife with startups and innovative infrastructure, stemming from places like the Cisco Innovation Center, Toronto is home to 30% of Canada’s IT firms, the majority of which have fewer than 50 employees. That means there’s a crop of young companies poised to make an impact in the next decade.

Overall, the city’s firms account for approximately $52 billion in yearly revenue.

8. Singapore

Aside from being a giant, rain-absorbing sponge, Singapore boasts an extremely high number of programmers and venture capitalists. The city-state is constantly introducing new infrastructure and high-tech high-rises, including one with an entire forest in the atrium.

It has partnered with MIT to build smarter transportation that relies less on private carsand more on public trains and light rail.

7. Boston, Massachusetts

A huge number of exciting technologies have been coming out of Boston over the last several years from STEM elites like MIT, Harvard, Tufts, and Northeastern — many of them in the biotech and robotic fields.

The city has a handful of venture capital firms (Battery Ventures, Atlas Venture, Bessemer Venture Partners, Matrix Venture Partners) that pour money into innovation labs and university startups. And big-name companies like Facebook and Amazon have set up R&D offices in Boston to pull from this growing pool of talent.

6. Taipei, Taiwan

According to 2thinknow’s analysis, Taipei is the far-and-away leader when it comes to industrial design. This has been the case for years — the city much prefers to delve into hardware rather than software. Some of the largest PC companies call the city home, including Asus, MSI, Gigabyte, and Acer.

According to 2thinknow, the city also scores highly in its number of venture capitalists.

5. Seoul, South Korea

Seoul has been called the city of the future, and rightfully so. Innovation is practically baked into its design, as its metro system may even have New York’s subway beat.

According to 2thinknow, Seoul files more patents than just about any city in the world. It has developed technology that is already ubiquitous — such as the LTE beamed to our smartphones — as well as tech still in its infancy, like virtual stores where you scan pictures of items to be delivered later.

4. Los Angeles, California

Film isn’t the only industry in LA.

In 2014, a report by the LA County Economic Development Corporation suggested that LA had more high-tech sector jobs than any other region in the US. The report also found the total wealth output hovers around $58 billion. When 2thinknow performed its analysis, it found the same: Startups and venture capital play a major role in LA’s tech sector boom.

3. London, England

London has become a public transportation dream over the last year with the introduction of its Crossrail project. By 2018, 10 new train lines will connect 30 existing stations with brand-new tunnels. At $20 billion, it’s the largest construction project in Europe.

2thinknow finds London has more startups and programmers than almost any other city in the world. By some estimates, there may be more IT jobs in London than all of California.

Some estimates say there will be 11,000 new tech jobs added within the next decade.

2. New York, New York

New York is a special kind of tech heavyweight. It is both extremely dated in its infrastructure, but at the same time, unbelievably progressive.

According to the state comptroller’s office, nearly 7,000 high-tech companies in New York City provided more than 100,000 jobs during the third quarter of 2013. In addition to starting companies, the city also launches integrated, citywide technology: LinkNYC, a free Wifi service, has over 500 kiosks around Manhattan available for public use, and many experts believe the city is just getting started.

1. San Francisco, California

If every city claims to be the “Silicon Valley” of its particular home country, you can guarantee Silicon Valley is the gold standard for tech.

Since 2thinknow defines the region by its largest neighboring city, San Francisco takes the top spot. It is the undeniable epicenter of all things tech, from its gigantic startup culture to its venture capital scene to its population of designers and programmers.

Silicon Valley wins in just about every category because the supply chain of innovation has made its home there, even as smaller contenders claw at the title.
